    At such an early age, mathematical reasoning begins with simple activities such as distinguishing between even or odd amounts and learning the ordinal numbers. The authors suggest working through this activity book page by page. The content spirals, which gives your child time to "digest" new concepts before moving on to more complex material. This series is correlated to the NCTM standards and accordingly incorporates topics such as patterns, number lines, graphs, fractions, probability, and problem solving, as well as basic addition and subtraction skills. The full-color activity sheets should especially appeal to the younger student. Not only are the illustrations eye-catching, but they do an excellent job of demonstrating mathematical representations and relationships. Although manipulatives are not required, a link to a virtual manipulative website is provided in case additional concrete-level reinforcement is needed. A wide variety of exercises and activities are utilized to keep your child both interested and motivated. For instance, Thinker Doodles and Mind Benders activities from parent company Critical Thinking are scattered throughout. 200+ pages. ~ Anh

    Sequel to The Fallacy Detective, this is by the same authors. While the first book focuses on recognizing bad reasoning, this book offers thirty-five lessons for strengthening your reasoning skills. The chapters provide you with tools for thinking, tools for opposing viewpoints, and tools for science. Within these chapters, you'll find lessons on when not to argue, finding the premises and conclusion, determining primary or secondary sources, circumstantial evidence, keen observation, brainstorming, analyzing data, and much more. This book is formatted much like The Fallacy Detective, with plenty of clear examples throughout the lessons and lengthy exercises following each lesson. Answers included, 234 pgs. - Melissa

    For such a useful study, logic can be a bit intimidating. This pair of workshops by two homeschool graduates goes a long way toward making the topic more understandable. A single DVD covers both Part I – Learning to Think Logically and Part II – Using Your Thinking Toolbox. The DVD also includes PDF files for the workshop handouts. Originally given to a roomful of students, Hans and Nathaniel Bluedorn together present both workshops (each about 50 minutes). With a wry touch of humor and some audience interaction they examine several different types of fallacies in Part I and ways to strengthen and train yourself to think logically in Part II. Watching a workshop video is never the same as being there in person; perhaps the biggest loss is the absence of the illustrative cartoons that were obviously a part of the original workshop. Dilbert, Calvin & Hobbes, and Far Side do not allow their cartoons to be used in video presentations and I found myself regretting that fact. Still, if you're wanting an introduction to the whole subject of logic, this is a good way to start.

    This updated version includes thirty-eight lessons (two new ones) on how to recognize bad reasoning. Learn to spot errors in others' logic, and your own. The focus is on practical logic, such as fallacies you might encounter in a newspaper. Learn to identify red herrings, circular reasoning, statistical fallacies, and propaganda. Each lesson presents several examples of poor reasoning often illustrated by cartoons and then provides a lengthy exercise set in which you identify the fallacies. This book features a Christian view of logic and was written by homeschoolers for homeschoolers. ~ Anh
